At PipingOffice.com, I recognize that privacy of your personal information is important. Here is information on what types of information I can receive when you use and visit PipingOffice.com or PipingOffice.us, and how I safeguard your information. I never sell your personal information to third parties.
As with most other websites, it is possible for me to collect and use the data contained in log files created by my hosting company. However, it is rare that I look at these log files. The information in the log files includes your IP (internet protocol) address, your ISP (internet service provider, such as ATT or Shaw Cable), the browser you used to visit my site (such as Internet Explorer or Firefox), the time you visited my site and which pages you visited throughout my site.
Cookies and Web Beacons
I use third party advertisements on PipingOffice.com and PipingOffice.us to support my site. Some of these advertisers may use technology such as cookies and web beacons when they advertise on my site, which will also send these advertisers (such as through the Google AdSense program) information including your IP address, your ISP, the browser you used to visit my site, and in some cases, whether you have Flash installed. This is generally used for geotargeting purposes (showing New York real estate ads to someone in New York, for example) or showing certain ads based on specific sites visited (such as showing cooking ads to someone who frequents cooking sites).
You can choose to disable or selectively turn off cookies or third-party cookies in your browser settings, or by managing preferences in programs such as Norton Internet Security. However, this can affect how you are able to interact with some websites. This could include the inability to login to services or programs, such as logging into forums or accounts.
Deleting cookies does not mean you are permanently opted out of any advertising program. Unless you have settings that disallow cookies, the next time you visit a site running the advertisements, a new cookie will be added.
